Hi, Great applet. I have 2 suggestions: 1) Set the duration of deactivation of the touchpad. 2) Set PIN to return the screen. Congratulations!

The version 2.0.0 of Turn Off Monitor is here. Now this applet is configurable. You can now: - Set the duration of deactivation of the mouse. To prevent the monitor from turning on too soon after turning it off, the mouse will be disabled for the number of seconds you have set (5 seconds by default). - Use a symbolic icon and choose its color. - Use a keyboard shortcut to turn off your monitor (<Super>b by default). Enjoy it!

Yet another great full-optional applet as usual from claudiux. You're spoiling us!

Sorry, now I understood: double-click does it!

Linux Mint 18.3 cinnamon monitor is only turned off for 1 second, then turns on again without any user-action and without any message

This is just great. I love it. A smaller icon is indeed useful.

I second @2dxb comment, please make a smaller icon. Other than that, I love this applet.
